Pinellas County Commission candidate Chris Scherer raised $23,525 in May, his campaign said.
The campaign has not yet filed financial reports detailing finance activity for the month.
But Scherer’s campaign for the District 1 seat said it raised $8,775 through its official campaign and $14,750 through his political committee, Friends of Chris Scherer.
If those reported totals are correct, it would bring Scherer’s campaign fundraising to $39,765 and his committee gains to $44,400, for a combined total of $84,165.
The Republican businessman faces Democrat Joanne “Cookie” Kennedy in the race to replace incumbent Janet Long, who is not seeking reelection.
